New Ibanez J-Customs with some odd specs

Did a search and found nothing so...

J.custom | Ibanez guitars











So far they're all 24.75 scale, and this new Edge Custom Bridge R setting. 2 models get a maple board, and the red one is American Basswood while the rest are African Mahogany.

Also Google translation:

Compared with the RG model number of the original made in Japan JCRG11 pickup only sought to clarify the differences in character.
Two humbuckers wired original RG, so that the guitar to play rock guitar music of a wide range of total JCRG11 wood and hardware, including pick-up not only "high output" or "in the thickness of the range "rather than" reasonable feeling of power "and" clear sound "has been developed with an emphasis on. Front pickup characteristics that sustain comfortable with if in a warm and eyes reduced slightly the number of /-coil turns used Alnico 3 magnets, more than the front course number / turn employ Alnico 5 magnets, the high frequency range and clear sense of power pickup rear felt.

Hardware:

The classic floating tremolo bridge that is highly valued by many musicians still after 25 years since its introduction more than adopt the original Ibanez EDGE.
(R fingerboard already specifically tailored Shimuappu JCRG11)
The locking nut is a 42mm wide-adopted TOP LOK III. The difference between 43mm and 1mm while only generalize RG, coupled with differences in neck shape difference can be felt 歴然To. RG and R together with previous fingerboard is comfortable playing them apart.
The strap pins are easily detachable straps, Free Lok pin standard adopted in j.custom.
Some yummy quality axes we have here. :yum:

EDIT: The above are the JCRG11 series. The JCRG10 series have neckthru joints, ebony boards, and the EZ trems.

Here they are by the way.

If those aren't veneers, that'd be awesome, but I assume it's the same thing they're doing on the Premiums. :noway:

I doubt they would do veneers on the J-Custom line.

I think that's the whole point of the Premium line. To make cheaper looking J-customs.

Wait, so Ibanez is making new mahogany guitars with maple boards, real tops, normal inlays and a bridge that isn't shit?

BRB, looking outside, because I think hell is freezing over.

The neckthrough ones are $6k(630,000yen). :lol:

Suddenly the Jem505 seems like a fucking steal. :rofl:

Oh yeah, those guitars have a 250mm neck radius, which is about 10". If it was 10-16" compound that would be cool, but that much curve is a huge turn off for me. :(

Yeah, the pricing on these is really far fetched.

I don't even see something like this selling in the 4k range, which is realistically what they'll hit the street at.

With you 100% - they always price the guitars everyone would buy in floods way out of reach. This should be the Prestige line with the J Customs exploring even more exotic woods (Purpleheart, Buckeye Burl tops etc) and luxuries like more stimulating and diverse inlay designs :agreed:
